The Tomah High School softball team split a pair of contests in West Salem Saturday.

The Timberwolves opened with an 18-5 rout of La Crescent but lost the second game to West Salem 4-1.

The split left Tomah with a 10-13 record.

Savannah Murphy amassed seven total bases − two doubles and a triple − in the victory over La Crescent. The Timberwolves scored 10 runs in the top of the fourth, and the game ended after five innings due to the 10-run rule.

Ella Plueger pitched the first four innings for Tomah and got the victory. Emma VanTreese pitched a scoreless fifth.

Tomah’s bats cooled off considerably against West Salem pitcher Samantha Thompson, who struck out three and walked nobody.

Journey Smith accounted for two of Tomah’s five hits with a solo home run in the sixth and a double.

Plueger pitched a complete game. She struck out five and walked two.

The post-season for the Timberwolves begins Tuesday, May 21 with a WIAA Division 1 Regional semifinal contest against an opponent and a site to be determined.
